I try to only have carbs/breads for breakfast, as I do believe we do need some in our diet. The rest of the day I try to focus and fruits & Veggies. Watermelon and raspberries seem to help me with my desert after every meal cravings. I have 16 slices of Cheesecake in the freezer downstairs and I can't believe I haven't gone for them. Out of sight out of mind helps me as well. emoticon

Can't wait til Trailer season - June 8th! :)

The same thing her, it has to be all or nothing. Including no rice, potatoes, bread, etc.
The only fruit is low glycemic like berries.

I understand. I am not safe with a box of cookies or bag of candy. I cannot control my portions of those things. I don't know if that will ever change, but for now I've finally purged my house of sweet temptations in an effort to get back on the road to losing weight and being more mindful of my choices. I have to keep reminding myself that this did not become a problem overnight...and I won't overcome these urges overnight either....one day at a time, right?

Step 1: Stop and think. Step 2: Take a deep breath. Step 3: Make a good choice.

Good-luck, LOULREY! emoticon

My main sweet-cravings are specifically for chocolate peanut butter cups, chocolate mints, or kisses. Those are the three that I must avoid. They are my triggers, and downfall. The 30 lbs. that I gained has been because of these sweets. I am not a person who can have just one serving and I don't like dark chocolate, so for me, it's necessary to abstain from them completely. This is my goal for the next four weeks. Good luck, team! emoticon

Will be giving up sweets and sticking to fruit. Last summer I lost 16.5 lbs with this approach as it seems with me in this respect is all or nothing. Once I started to indulge in sweets, they were craved every day and since November gained 10lbs back. Just bought the Jawbone Up24 to replace my lost Spark tracker, tracking activity has really helped me focus on fitness. Now its time to tame my sugar monster! Wish me luck! 😄
